Improv star coming to The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa
TULSA, Okla. — One of the nation’s favorite stand-up comedians, Bruce Bruce, is taking his unique style of comedy on the road and making a stop at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa on March 7.
Tickets start at $25 and are on sale now.
Bruce Bruce is a name synonymous with keeping audiences rolling with laughter thanks to his captivating improv skills and larger-than-life comedic style. Bruce’s steady style of comedy has been showcased across the country, and he has been entertaining audiences young and old, and of all backgrounds, for years. His wit, spontaneity and dazzling personality set him apart from other standup comedians. Although Bruce is known for his adult comedy, he prides himself on not using vulgarity to win a laugh and is no stranger to winning over audiences with every appearance he makes.
Bruce’s comedy can be traced back to when he was working as a chef directly out of high school. He would entertain his customers with his humor while cooking up mean BBQ dishes. He also worked as a Frito-Lays salesman and did everything from shelf placement to performing his comedy sets during their corporate meetings. Eventually, Bruce brought his comedy routine to the Comedy Act Theater in Atlanta and was an instant hit. When BET’s “Coast to Coast” came to town searching for new and talented stand-up comedians, Bruce would pursue the opportunity to appear on the show and audition at each club in the area. He appeared on the show three times before making his first appearance on HBO’s “Def Comedy Jam” in 1993, followed by “Showtime at the Apollo,” hosted by Steve Harvey, in 1994. Bruce was asked back to the Apollo two more times in 1995.
The comedian went on to host BET’s “10th Anniversary Comic View” for two seasons, as well as “Coming to the Stage.” Bruce went on from there to star in his own “Comedy Central Presents” special, which he followed with the release of his one-hour comedy special DVD, “Bruce Bruce Live” (2003) and more recently on “Losin’ It” (Showtime 2011). He’s also no stranger to the big screen, with roles in “Hair Show,” “The Wash,” “Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector,” “Who’s Your Caddy” and “XXX: State of the Union.”
Bruce stepped onto the music video scene with guest appearances in videos with Ludacris and the Ying Yang Twins (after being named in their hit song “Salt Shaker”). He also appeared in Quad City DJs’ “Come On Ride the Train (Ride It)” and Outkast’s “So Fresh, So Clean.” His festival appearances include the prestigious Just For Laughs Comedy Festival, Laffapalooza and the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival.
You can currently find Bruce on Syfy’s “Superstition,” “Showtime at the Apollo (2018),” his recent DVD release, “Losin’ It: Live from Boston,” “Shaquille O’Neal’s Comedy All Stars” (Showtime 2018) and in constant reruns of BET’s “Comic View.” Bruce is also appearing in the soon to be released “Undercover Brother 2” later this year.
When not performing in comedy clubs across the country, Bruce spends his time at home with his extended family in Atlanta. He is also extremely dedicated to his incredible car collection, which includes two Harley Davidson trucks and four Buick muscle cars, among others.
